With Günther Uecker and Brigitte Stöckhert Male finger between two female fingers. Addicional eroctic giggling. In "The Finger" we see a male finger moving between two female fingers; with that the giggeling of a woman and a man. A film of sensual touch with all its related associations. (H.P.KOCHENRATH)

Margret, seit mehr als 45 Jahren meine Lebensgefährtin, hasste es, fotografiert zu werden. Seit vier Wochen liegt sie mit Krebs im Hospiz. Am späten Abend ein Anruf, sie habe sich nackt gemacht, ich solle kommen, ein Foto von ihr machen, „ein Foto für die Kunst“. Irritiert fahre ich hin, aber ohne Kamera. Als ich sie vor mir sehe, begreife ich wie ernst es ihr ist. Am nächsten Tag erfüllt sich ihr Wunsch als wäre es meiner, womit sich auf wundersame Weise unser beider Leben erfüllt....

Test filming with Eddie Constantine in Wiesbaden for the movie "Tango through Germany". For years I was looking for an actor who strives steadfastly afar. Someone who is not going for specific goal, but celebrates in a ritual way that it is about something that concerns everyone. Someone who makes a mark, provoking as a performance artist and takes the liberty to swim against the current. In April 1979, I found myself sitting next to Eddie Constantine. I told him about the project. He...

Bundesfilmpreis: Filmband in Silber With Ila Goldstern u. Günter Wolf. An authentic marriage dispute that looks like a play. KLAUS ULRICH REINKE, WESTDEUTSCHE KURZFILMTAGE OBERHAUSEN, REPORT, 1976 This could be the kind the absolute amateurism that we should proclaim furthermore; Amateurism as a concept, a mental substance! Because at the moment only the causalistic perfectionism is claimed as a mistake of universal consequence. This amateuristic climax in the form of "As if it was a...

With Brigitte S. and Wolfgang D. At the climax of her career, the Schiller decided to do something different. LUTZ MOMMARTZ In 1968 I made with Wolf Domke -an art and architecture student from Düsseldorf- a film about his vision of the future. It became a testimony to the impotence of the individual, to understand and redesign the world. Six years later I met his girlfriend Brigitte Schiller. As the owner of an agency in a professional and personal changing situation she became for me a medium...

An artificial look at the faces of grass pavers. The walk over the grass pavers -as a score to the music of J.S. Bach- ends with a laconic pan shot on the Laber, a small river near by Dietfurt / Germany.

With Jürgen Kuhfuß "Monuments" is an attack on the meaning of monuments, here in Düsseldorf / Germany. And then suddenly a film with a recognizable concept was shown, an attack on the Monument Forest in Düsseldorf from imperialist and fascist days, along with the call to replace the monuments with memorials for the victims from these bloody times. That was a debatable attempt to make visible and attack the "Unresolved past". (PETER STEINHART, RP, 6.4.72)

The film is a simulation of the alternating blinking of the eye by moving the lens of the camera from the right to the left and back.

With Wolfgang Domke A man, "tied" to a table, gets drunk, eats beetroot and cream pie to be able to chuck and then during the some hours lasting process of sobering / disillusion he explains his vision of the future. DIE WELT, 12.3.69 Difficulties in articulation: In a gradual disillusionment from a drunken stupor, in dull bulls, chunking up (! In color, which was nice) and troglodytic muck the first communication sounds chuckle slowly from the speakers. The action takes place with...

I threw the camera in the air and in this way I was able to express my aversion to conventional film show and skip my own limits. (LUTZ MOMMARTZ) "Selfshots" is the visual biography of an unconventional filmmaker. As a director, cinematographer and actor in one person, he points the camera on himself. He plays with her , throws it into the air, hurtling across the meadows, filmed his movements, his face and his hands and demonstrates in this way his adventurous relationship with a...
